Desolated, an engine builder for 1-6 players. Harvest materials, optimise exploration, make trades and influence orbital councils for dominance and ultimately victory. The first player to dominate 5 councils, wins the game.
In turn order, clockwise around the table, each player has two phases. In the first phase, draw 2 material-cards into your hand. In the second phase, either play a material card to optimise your engine, trade for influence or dominate an orbital council.
Summon creatures, build attractions and entice visitors to your otherworld theme park.
In Cthulhu Island, cultist travel the world to create the best and most grotesque theme park, filled with creatures and elder gods from other dimensions and realms beyond this world.
During your turn, you expand the map. Then you either explore, enlist or exterminate cultists, taking actions based on your available control in an area. Each area has an associated action, that will grant you favours based on the amount of cultist available and if you can pay the elemental cost.
Throughout the game, you will face many options on your travel; gaining power from magical sources, summoning creatures, building attractions, entice visitors or destroy your opponents. It's all for the greater good (or the greater gods)!
In the end, you win by publicity. Explore, enlist, entice and exterminate in Cthulhu Island!
